    Like you all can see, this is my first post here on BHW. I've been browsing the site occasionally for many years, been a good help many times.


    I'm a dropshipper on Ebay, all goes well, it's good and easy money for a student like me.


    The selling steps go like this:
    1. Sell ebay item->
    2. Receive money in USD on Paypal ->
    3. Change the USD's in EUR on Paypal ->
    4. Withdraw money from Paypal to bank (in EUR) ->
    5. Receive EUR on bank ->
    6. Make the order on Aliexpress & couple of other site's using iDEAL (dutch instant payment method from bank, in EUR)


    (It's not like I wait till the money arrives on my bank from paypal, and then make the order. But on the long term, it goes like this.)


    Now, there are drawbacks with the method I'm using.
    Firstly, I have to pay USD->EUR fees when withdrawing money from paypal to bank. Secondly, I have to pay EUR->USD fee's on ali-express.


    So it's USD->EUR->USD (->= Fee)
    And I want to change it to: USD (pp)->USD (ae)->EUR and private orders I make in USD


    Does anyone know how to do this without making more unnecessary costs then I'm doing right now.
    I tried payoneer (costs too high), pp debit/credit card (only for US residents), making a foreign valuta bank account in my home country (cant set paypal to let the money arrive in USD's to that account).
    Changing my listings in EUR is possible, but it's harder to maintain a stable price, and I would have to change from ebaycom to the european e-bay.


    Could anyone help me, or maybe help me out of this dream?

    I'm not sure how this happened, but I think I posted this into the wrong section. I thought i was posting it in another.
